DO NOT let off the throttle before you leave the jump.

If you are going to land wrong, gas it HARD. This has saved me many, many times. I am sure of it...

Trying to adjust mid air, by gassing or braking, only works on long jumps.

It is best to land slightly rear wheels first.

If you are going to hit your face on the bars, try to hit the pad. (Maybe practice aiming for the pad?!?) I hit my chin (no stiches, but still hurts) on the top of the throttle last thursday. I bit chunks out of both sides of my tounge. I can talk normally (my opinion) after one week now...

Don't jump with tounge hanging out.(see above)

This probably won't be heeded ; Don't let anybody talk you into something you probably won't be able to pull off in relative safety.

Try to ride with someone who rides better than you as often as possible.

Just a small tip. On most jumps when i get in the air I push the quad out in front of me so that I am sitting more towards the back of the quad. This helps to keep the quad flying level. Also on table tops. If you can clear the whole thing and i mean the whole thing till the point you are always landing on the downside, assuming the landings are big enough, I say 5ft or higher. I like to slighty push the nose over when landing so the front wheels almost hit first. This helps to make it a smoother landing and bottoming is not going to happen if you have your shocks set right because of the down slope on the landing. Also give it gas before you land.

actually if you hit the front brake, the effect of dropping the nose is greater than the rear, you will actually drop the nose faster when you do all 4. be careful. Think about the gyroscope effect and how if you stop something that is spinning, how it affects the object. Can't think of a comparison or experiment right now...
